This program highlights how America is increasingly provoking God to anger and making a mockery of his unearned, unmerited favor (his grace) toward us.

We see this demonstrated as Vic played audio of a greeting from President Obama who was honoring LGBT activists and others that are part of this movement in celebration of June as LGBT Pride Month. President Obama’s words of praise for gays and lesbians went so far as to credit them with being those who’ve “bent the arc of the moral universe towards justice.”

Vic also presented audio from Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta who joined LGBT Pride Month recognition as he thanked homosexual military personnel with his own official salute. This salute centered on praising the LGBT community as simply part of an America that consists of individuals who share different backgrounds, values and beliefs, and that by including them, this makes the military a model of equal opportunity.

Before taking phone calls from listeners, Vic played a second audio cut from President Obama. This one was from Friday, June 15th when, for the fourth consecutive year, he spoke at a LGBT celebration at the White House.

Along with numerous words of praise and encouragement for the LGBT community, President Obama noted that his administration put an end to “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” and that his administration is also not defending the Defense of Marriage Act (D.O.M.A.) in the courts.

Soon the U.S. Senate will be voting on SB-811, The Employment Non-Discrimination Act. If passed, this act could have serious ramifications, particularly for religious organizations that do not ascribe to the LGBT lifestyle.
